10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana October 16, 1987 Entertainment IIIII On the Record By CHARLIE MARTIN NC News Service Columnist Our fives be00.',00me enriched when we "Give to Live" Give to Live I can see that/You've got fire in your eyes/And pain inside your heart/So many things have come/And torn your world apart/Oh baby, don't give up, don't give up/Don't give up. REFRAIN: If you want to love You've got to give a little If you want faith You've got to believe a little If you want peace, turn your cheek a little You've got to give You've got to give You've got to give to live!. An empty hand reaching out for someone/An empty heart takes so little to fill/It's so much easier to push instead of pull/Oh baby don't give up/Don't give up, don't give up. REPEAT REFRAIN Each man's a country in his own right/Everybody needs a friend. I believe in fate and destination/But so much of that lies in our own hands/If you know what you want/Just start out to get it/Oh baby, don't L give up/Don't give up, don't give up. Written and recorded by Sammy Hagar Copyright (c) 1987 by the David Geffen Company SAMMY HAGAR'S MUSIC IS known for lots of decibels. His latest hit, "Give to Live," tones down the volume and offers listeners some worthwhile ideas. The song suggests that much of'what we seek in life requires us to make an effort. Faith, peace and love come into our lives when we do something to help them happen. In the song's words, to receive what we want out of life, we must "give to live." I completely agree. We get more out of life by giving what we have to share. Finding our own happiness is interwoven with helping others be happy. A problem with this understanding develops when someone believes that he or she has little to give. Sometimes this occurs when a young person has not achieved according to the usua! teen yard- sticks of success at school, in athletics or with peers. " The song encourages people not to ':give up" on themselves. Each person possesse talents. But perhaps the person's gifts have not surfaced in the traditional ways. This may mean that the gifts are more special -- and perhaps more needed in the world. An important measure Of success is how freely we have given of our time and caring. Obviously there are several ways that we can do this. Let me cite just one example. I have noticed that many teens have a talent for responding to the needs of the elderly. For ex- ample, teens can write letters for hands crippled i by arthritis or read books for eyes dimmed by fail- ing sight. A teen's companionship and friendship can take the edge off the loneliness an elderly per- son may be experiencing. Whatever we choose to do, our lives become enriched when we "give to live." As Hagar clearly states, life becomes a more satisfying experience if people give a little, believe a little and love a little. Your comments always are welcome.

He's told there's a "spin" (spell) on him to make him change his mind as he muddles over what course of action to take.

Frank (Tim Reid) is a even-tempered, well-educated and refined Bostonian who in- herits his father's New Orleans Creole restaurant. The first episodes show him meeting with the hired help, which New home ,00ideo covers life of Pope John Paul II British Academy Award winner Albert Finney portrays Pope John Pual II in a film recently released on home video by Prism Entertainment. "Pope John Paul II covers a span of four decades in the life of Karol Wojytla -- from his teenage years to his election to the papacy in 1978 -- the first non-Italian pope in over four centuries. The production was filmed in Rome and Austria and is reported to be the first authorized feature to be shot on loca- tion in the Vatican, Besides Finney, the film also features Nigel Hawthorne ( F!refox" and "Ghandi"),, Alfred Burke ("Law and Disorder ) and John McEnery (' Nicholas and Alexandra' ').

The polite and decent Frank is set up as the straight man for a series of remarks.: meant to characterize the folksy' ' staff members who have spent their lives running the place. But the contrasts are not suffi- ciently severe to be milked for humor or social significance. What we have is a positive image of a black American hav- ing a simple struggle of cons- cience, then getting involved in the daily operation of "the Chez" with not the slightest.,, interest in his roots. ,e /1 , "1 r  Restaurant !."
